I recently took a quick (and I mean quick) trip to Milwaukee to celebrate my brother Jordon (please don't spell it with an "A") tying the knot with my now sister-in-law Jaime. I was excited for a number of reasons. The main one being that all 6 of us siblings have not been in the same room together for 4 years. I love having a big family, except for the issue that we are all so spread out that the chances of seeing everyone at the same time are slim, like once every 4 years slim.
I was also excited to see Milwaukee as I had only been a couple of times in all my years of midwest living. One of those happened to be attending Lilith Fair there in the 90's. I have been on a 90's nostalgia kick lately, don't even get me started! I will tell you all right here and now that I did shed a tear when Sarah McLachlan hit the stage back then.., that voice! But this post isn't about my hemp necklace, short hair, wish I could turn into Drew Barrymore phase of life. Although it would be amazing to feel towards music the way I did back then. (Another post another time).
It was rainy and foggy most of the trip, but I honestly didn't mind. The city looked beautiful capped with fog.
We all slept at Jordon and Jaime's house. What troopers to host all of us! We had some air mattress issues (I may have woken up in the middle of the night with no air in said mattress. Then that same mattress may or may not have been passed on to my older brother when he arrived as if it suddenly did not have a leak.) We helped my mom with her ipad issues, including deleting and reinstalling her facebook app...which was a very very dramatic event as she was certain her FB was going to be gone. We went to a polish festival and watched people Polka dance and shared a bunch of food. We went to a farmers market, played backyard games, and made little movies. I'm so happy those who could make it were able to come and celebrate Jordon and Jaime's marriage and make some memories.
I leave you with this :)
